Like you, we are closely watching the news. We hope all of our athletes and their families are currently safe, and are taking precautions to remain so.
After consultation with — and guidance from — the permitting authorities, it was decided to cancel these events for this year:
Wellfleet Triathlon (May 30)
Hyannis Triathlon 1 (June 13)
SOS Cape Cod Triathlon (June 20)
Falmouth Triathlon (July 12)
Athletes have received instructions. If you are a registered athlete and did not receive the email, please email email@example.com.
And — several of these triathlons have a do-it-yourself option for those who need to race! Visit our registration page to select a Tri It Your Way triathlon!
For our other planned 2020 events, the permitting authorities have agreed with us that it would not be prudent to make immediate decisions —but it does make sense that we plan for any contingency. Of course we hope the current public health concerns will be sharply reduced come summer. And even if they are, we will introduce new health precautions into all of our races as standard procedure.
Here’s the current status of our other races:
Sea to Summit Triathlon (July 25): Still planned as scheduled
Hyannis 2 Triathlon (September 12): Now designated as the 2020 Massachusetts State Championships. Still planned as scheduled
Gut Check Triathlon (October 17): Still planned as scheduled
One of the oddities of the event production business is that significant costs are paid long before race weekend…as much as a year in advance. Yet while we realize there is some financial hardship for our company now and in the future, we will work diligently to provide options to every one of our athletes that reflect the value of their registrations.
Kathleen, Andy and the NEEE gang wish you to know that, for quite a few years now, the displays of loyalty and affection by those in our triathlete community have changed our own lives dramatically. We will always return this trust to everyone who participates in our events.
This webpage will be updated every few weeks — or whenever we have any bit of news to share. We hope you stay safe (and keep training) over the coming days, and we very much look forward to seeing you this summer!
